I am pretty sure I know what it is...although many may not believe me.
I was talking to a Nintedo rep. on tech support b/c my Wifi USB connector wouldn't work for my DS. He was unable to help me get the program running, and suggested it was either my computer or my ISP. I simply explained that I've been through the same thing with both Dell and AT&T and no one can seem to get the damned thing working when i have tried everything from disabling/re-enabling connection sharing and even rebuilt my whole network from scratch updated the driver,ect..
Anyway he finally offered that I send it back and that it may be defective. (no shit...lol)
For my troubles I asked him for some compensation. he said he was under strict policy not to reveal anything game wise until they were able to officially announce it, which was understandable.
He did however say that there was a new version of the Wii coming out with DVD playback capabilities. I asked him when he said sometime later this year (it was around April at the time). I asked if there was going to be an external add-on for hose of us who already own the console and would like the option. He said that was "classified".
So there you have it. My speculation on what this new SKU could mean for all us "wii-tards" out there.
P.S.:I still never got my wifi connector to work and any help would be appreciated.
